The spirit of the flooring industry’s giving and caring nature was once again in the air at the Barnsley Gardens resort in Adairsville, Ga., as CCA Global Partners hosted its 12th Annual Alan Greenberg Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF).

Founded in 1980 by several prominent industry figures, led by the late industry icon and Hall of Famer, Walter Guinan, FCIF is dedicated to financially assisting any person involved in the floor covering industry—from installer up to mill CEO and everyone in between—who experience catastrophic illness, severe disabilities or other life-altering hardships.

Once again, CCA’s annual event brought together industry colleagues from all across the country to enjoy a day of golf while helping those in the industry who need it the most. Manufacturers, distributors, retailers, industry trade associations, and individuals representing these companies contributed to the FCIF through the Alan Greenberg Memorial Fund by participating in the tournament, which is named after the late Alan Greenberg, co-founder of CCA and a member of the Industry Hall of Fame. Money was also raised through sponsorships and donations.

Following a day of “friendly” competition, the event raised $140,000 to help FCIF in its efforts. With this contribution, CCA’s annual tournament had raised more than $1.6 million for the non-profit organization.

“We are fortunate to have this opportunity to bring together business partners and friends to support a worthy cause,” said Howard Brodsky, co-founder and co-CEO of CCA. “We all enjoyed the day of golf, but more importantly we raised significant funds for the FCIF.”

Rick Bennet, CCA’s other co-CEO, added the company is “honored to host this annual event which creates awareness and encourages others in the industry to donate to the FCIF. We will continue to make FCIF a priority and to provide assistance to those in our industry who need it.”
